Ride For Sight 2015

January 8th, 2015 @   -  9 Comments

With four successful years behind us, we are once again ready for our fifth Ride for Sight Charity Bike-a-thon! For 2015, we have been blessed to have the partnership and support of G-Club Penang Cyclist and Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP) with us again. The theme for 2015 is “Life@Max”.

In order to make this fifth edition a special and memorable one we are having our Ride for Sight in conjunction with earth hour 2015. RFS stands for equal opportunities for BVI and their sighted peers, so that they can be living their life@max as well for nurturing Mother Nature. Therefore we thought this fifth anniversary a good opportunity to partner with the earth hour from Queensbay Mall to show everyone that two causes can go hand-in-hand. This also means that this year’s ride will not be in the morning but in the evening! We will have an exciting programme at Queensbay mall which include performances and our well known lucky draw with the flag-off of our “Ride for Sight” at the start of earth hour, which is at 8.30pm.

The ride will be held on the 28th of March 2015 (Saturday) at Queensbay Mall  from 6.00pm to 9.30pm

We have set a target of 1,000 participants for Ride for Sight 2015 and aim to raise at least RM 100,000.00 nett  from the event. Participation fee is set at RM50 per person. Participants will receive a registration kit which includes a t-shirt and a lucky draw coupon.

      Hello Sidek,

      Individual bicycles are alright for this ride. You will have to bring your own bicycles for the ride. However, should you require a bicycle, there are 30 bicycles available for rental on a first come first serve basis.

      The tandem bicycles are reserved for our own visually impaired riders and they will be assigned to pre-determined sighted pilot riders.

      We look forward to seeing you at the ride!

      Best Regards,
      SNH Team
